7.3 FILLING AND PRIMARY PACKING PROCEDURE:

STEP-I (BOTTLE DE- CARTONING):

De-carton the pet bottles from corrugated boxes and arrange it in turntable. Start the turntable and conveyor. Bottles will move and pass through an empty visual inspection unit.

STEP-II (EMPTY BOTTLES INSPECTION):

Inspect empty bottles for any damages & cleanliness before filling.

STEP-III (LIQUID FILLING AND SEALING):

Record the temperature of Liquid Filling & Sealing Area. (temperature NMT 25 0C and relative humidity NMT 60%).

Transfer the bulk suspension from SS Storage tank (capacity: 500 liters) to Liquid Filling Tank (capacity: 100 liter) by pipe line through gravity.

Adjust the volume of the suspension with the help of screw on the filling cylinder.

Set volume at 60 ml. and check the filled volume through the measuring cylinder. If filling volume is within limit (NLT 60 ml + 2 ml).Start the filling operation.

If filling volume is out of limit, again adjust the volume.

Reject the first two to four bottle stroke of liquid while setting of volume.

Load the PP Cap to the hopper of sealing machine and PP Caps moves to bottle head through shoot of machine.

Adjust the Sealing Machine as per size of PP cap (25 mm).

After Filling and Sealing Machine setting, start the Liquid Bottle Filling and Sealing Operation.

Monitor the in-process parameters mentioned in Step- 7.1 during Filling and Sealing Operation & record.

STEP-I (VISUAL INSPECTION):

Perform visual inspection of filled & sealed bottles for damages, improper sealing, low / high volume and foreign particles.

Transfer the good inspected bottles through conveyor for labeling & packing.

Keep aside all the bottles from rejection like improper sealing & low/high volume & recover the liquid by filter through 60# filter cloth & add it to Filling Tank.

Rejection like damaged bottles and bottles with foreign particles are to be destroyed in presence of QA.

After completion of the operation (filling and sealing) fill 100 liter Purified Water (Room temperature) in Storage Tank and circulate water for 10 minutes and then drain out completely.

Clean all Machines properly as per respective cleaning SOPs.

STEP-II (MEASURING CUP PLACING):

Put Measuring cup manually on the bottles and press the measuring cups by hands, so that measuring cups are fit properly on the bottles.

 STEP-III (LABELS CODING PROCEDURE):

Clean the Domino Printing Machine as per respective SOP.

Take the Line Clearance from IPQA.

Transfer the labels to Printing room from Store.

Re ensures the number of labels received for overprinting with status label.

Set the Batch details (Batch No., Mfg Date., Exp Date and MRP.) in Domino Printing machine and verify the details in PLC display.

Take the specimen sample of printed labels and checked by Production Supervisor for correctness of Batch details and match with Batch Planning sheet and will be counter checked by IPQA.

After approval affix, specimen sample of printed labels to batch record and start labels coding.

After labels coding, keep the printed labels in bundles and store in racks, affix the status label “Ready For Packing” with Batch Details and transfer Secondary Packing of Liquid Section.

Keep the rejected quantity of labels separately for destruction with proper status label “Rejected”.

STEP-III (BOTTLE LABELING AND PACKING):

Clean the Labeling Machine as per respective SOP.

Take the Line Clearance from IPQA.

Set the labeling machine for the required label size (60 ml).

Start labeling machine and start the pasting of batch coded labels on bottles.

Check each labeled bottle for proper labeling & printing.

Pack the 100 labeled bottles in one corrugated box.

Finally close the corrugated box with BOPP tape and affix box label on corrugated box & weigh it.

After the completion of packing operation, calculate the batch yield (Limit: NLT 97% to NMT 100%)

Reconcile the packing material. Return the excess packing material to Packing Material Store with PPC

Destroy all rejected printed packing materials in the presence of IPQA.

Transfer the finished product to Finished Goods Store.

9.0 FINISHED PRODUCT SAMPLING & ANALYSIS:

After completion of packing, collect the Finished Product sample (01 bottle) and control sample (05 bottles) from packing line and send to QC for analysis as per approved finished specification.

10.0 SHIPPER STRIPING:

In Finished Goods Store strip all packed shipper with the help of Shipper Stripping Machine and inform to sales department for billing and dispatch.

11.0 PROCEDURAL CHANGES:

If the production department has compelling reasons for modifying this manufacturing procedure, it should proceed only after approval from Quality Assurance Department.

NOTE

After completion of the packing operation, clean equipment and packing area as per respective cleaning SOPs, to prepare for the next batch.
